Here’s an example of one just posted on IMDB from a UU member yesterday:

The Miniature Masterpiece - Size Isn't Everything, 11 April 2009
Author: dagehamebad from United Kingdom

An outstanding piece of cinema and I don't use the word 'outstanding' lightly here. The narration and artwork combined so well to bring the story to life. It was a witty, uplifting tale of joy. This short stop off in the brilliant minds of Gary San Angel and Rocky Kev will bring hope, aspiration and belief to not just ukulele enthusiasts but anyone who who's willing to let their ideas in. I was engrossed more than I have been by any movie for a long time, that's down to my passion for the ukulele and being able to relate to the pure enthusiasm and love for something that this movie displays. This is far more than a flash in a pan and deserves international recognition in all the right quarters. There's much more to it than an outsider lookin in would grant it.

Don't worry about repetitiveness, or how you write it or spelling, just speak from the heart and how the film touched you as a ukulele player, KoAloha, UU, Hawaiian Moon supporter, basically speak from you.

To me the films message is so hopeful and inspiring especially because it is a true to life story. And if you are holding a KoAloha ukulele in your hands right now, you are part of that story.

And in these tough economic times, really we need a story like this for folks like Hawaiian Moon and local shops in Hawaii and really all around the world to feel inspired to help keep us going. Even though the film is about KoAloha and the first miniature tunable playable ukulele that started it all, we want to send a really loud hopeful message from this very small instrument that started it all.

So please help us get the message of this film out there by commenting on IMDB and rating the film.

Many thanks again! Enjoy the upcoming screenings here on UU! Hope you can still win a DVD! :smileybounce:
